This week on the Memory Machine, two very special guests, Ryan Claytor and Nick Baldridge of the Coin-Op Carnival comic magazine, talk all about their joint publication, amazing pinball (and non-pinball) related projects, and their shared love of electro mechanical amusements. You’ll learn about bingo pinball! You’ll find out how pinball can be really fun even without flippers! You’ll buy a copy of Coin-Op Carnival!
Speaking of which, you can get a copy for yourself at Ryan’s website!
Ryan’s new podcast all about handheld gaming in the early 80’s is Game & Cast.
Nick’s long running podcast is For Your Amusement Only: The EM & Bingo Podcast. Both of the aforementioned podcasts come highly recommended.
Ryan’s son’s first comic book Kickstarter has finished, but you can find out more about it here.
